Jackson Funs and Coosa Fishing Boats debut at WCK!

Its likely not news anymore at this point, but we here at WCK are still mega stoked about our newest line of boats by Jackson Kayaks. These guys just won't stop coming out with sweet new boats.

The latest additions to our line up is the super cool Coosa Fishing kayaks. The Coosa has unique written all over it. With Jackson's always new and fresh 'take' on kayaks they have built one of the most comfortable and versatile new fishing machines out there. The Coosa is at home on flat water, but really shines in mild whitewater. This just makes way too much sense for fishing in BC. While there is some great lake and ocean fishing all over South West BC there is certainly just as much or more great river fishing, and now we have the perfect craft to get you and your rod to where you need to be.

I'm not going to go into detail on the countless amazing features this boat has to offer the fishing crowd as that is likely better suited for a short novel than this blog. However, there are just a few features I can't help but mention.

First off, the seat, it kicks butt (no pun intended). It's hugely comfortable and adjustable, it can even be elevated for a better casting position, bonus! The seat is also removable, so on fishing trips you've got an A+ seat whether you're on the water or enjoying a nice cold beer on the beach after a day of fishing.

Another super cool feature is that this boat is designed for standing in, so casting with a little elevation while your fly fishing from a kayak is no longer an issue.

I also really love the inside storage, the inside of the boat is designed so that rods can be stored internally and the hatches lock to keep your gear safe and secure on your next trip, this also reduces time spent setting up for a day of fishing; load the boat, drive to fishing spot, unload boat, start fishing!

The Coosa isn't the only new boat for us this week from Jackson. After an astonishing number of requests we have fully stocked ourselves with Jackson Fun series of boats, with demos and stock boats in the 2fun, Fun and 4Fun we now carry every whitewater boat made by Jackson.

If you paddle whitewater, likely the Fun series needs no introduction. If you're new to the sport then you will soon find out why the Fun is one of the most popular whitewater kayaks on the market today. It's a river running play boat, with gobs of stability, heaps of surf-ability and an excess of comfort! Hence the name Fun.

Starting at $999 for the Super Linear model the Fun series will offer you a great platform for learning and advancing your paddling, without smashing open the bank account.
